My background is relatively humble, but I was fortunate to attend very good schools. I earned a degree in management studies, completed a law degree, and was called to the Nigerian Bar. I worked in various administrative positions and practiced law for some years. But, as I was faced with life’s challenges, I needed answers to many questions. Someone had dropped off a copy of Science and Health for a mutual boss and I was impelled to investigate its contents.
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the textbook of Christian Science by Mary Baker Eddy, references “honest seekers for Truth” as those who find, understand and practice the Science of Christ. Making Christian Science my own came naturally with the deep study of its textbook, which gives new meaning to the Bible by exploring and explaining God’s healing laws that are available to everyone. It helps us understand that the same Christ-spirit that Jesus lived and taught can be found within each one of us, and that the Christ heals disease and overcomes fear, doubt, and inharmony. The Bible speaks to each of us in a way that we can understand, so we can begin to feel and experience what Jesus taught and be willing to follow him.
I found the book was a page-turner and the wonderful ideas in it transformed my life. I had been unclear about God, religion and the concept of Christian healing. Science and Health answered many probing questions and several personal and other healings followed. Heeding the behest of God, I left my growing law practice and devoted my life to the public healing practice. I became an advocate for God and dedicated my life to helping others find spiritual solutions through scientific prayers.
My life’s purpose is to share what I learn from my study and demonstration of Christian Science. From this I get the most fulfillment and satisfaction.
